Hello all! New to the forums...
I am planning a last minute relocation/honeymoon trip from Seattle to Baltimore. We've got 11 days to do it leaving noontime Wednesday 10/8, arriving in Baltimore late night Sunday 10/19 or early Monday morning. Total distance around 4100 miles. We will be taking a tent to hopefully camp somewhere on the Oregon/California beach...I've heard Golden Bluffs is a nice campground, open to other suggestions. Rest of the time will be hotels.
Start driving south on I5, maybe take 101 across the Astoria bridge if its daylight out, otherwise I5 to 30 west to get on 101.
-Redwood National Park
-Bonus:Golden Gate Bridge
-Salt Lake City
-Arches National Park
-Bonus:Four Corners, NM
-St Louis Arch
We've never been to any of the places listed, most interested in the first portion up to the Redwoods as I've heard the great things about the OR/CA coast. I'm sure I've overlooked some great stops along the way, please feel free to point them out.
Heres the tentative route in google maps
I anticipate driving straight though on the last leg between St Louis and Baltimore, arriving late Sunday or early Monday. This should give us an extra day to work with in Moab or along the coast.
Thanks in advance for the last minute help!
